"To: Miss Toothfairy"

Ah, the minds of children: mysterious and endlessly entertaining. Louise recently lost a front tooth, and we put it in an envelope to go under her pillow. Louise decided to decorate the envelope—like such:

The front of the envelope "To: Miss Toothfairy from: Louise Olivier Date: 11-3-09". (The middle figure is obviously the tooth fairy triumphantly holding a tooth. I'm not quite sure what the deal is with the two giant disembodied heads on the horizon.)

And the back, with a label, "Tooth stuff" (presumably for ease of filing; I imagine the tooth fairy has a very large "Tooth Stuff" section in her file cabinet), and a sort of crest/seal containing the statement, "My tooth is very small" (which it was).



  1. Hmmm, I wonder what the tooth fairy does with all those old teeth, she must need a clear-out occasionally. Is there some clever recycling scheme in tooth-fairy land? Do they get turned into elephant tusks?

    Hide that envelope real good. That's how the veil was lifted from my eyes. Although my letter didn't have such beautiful artwork. Impressive.

  3. those two disembodied heads are June and Louise: their bodies are under the covers and they're sharing the bed, eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Tooth Fairy. Was she generous?
